Fabulous, tasty food - beautifully presented. The veal in mushroom sauce is delicious and malteser cheesecake is to die for. Fish is first class too. Friendly service and nothing is too much trouble for them. Costs very reasonable. This place is a hidden gem. One of those places you want to keep secret!

I was blown away by the setting. You have a breathtaking view of a river and vast valley. The food was top notch, i had a salmon starter which was very lightly seared (i actually didn't know you could get away with cooking fish so little but I'm told that it is in keeping with the name) nevertheless it was...

Went for lunch, drove from Croydon, warm welcome with unhurried but adequate service. Food was delightful and the view down onto the Usk valley was brilliant

We called in not quite knowing what to expect. We were just in time for the great value early bird menu. The vegetarian set menu was very good with an excellent mushroom pie.

Very pleased with the fact as a veggie I was catered for last minute, and the meal itself was generous and extremely tasty. Yorkshire puds among the best I've tasted and the desserts were beautifully presented and equally as large.

A delightful restaurant overlooking the River Usk. The food is consistently excellent, with interesting menus using local ingredients where possible. Food is full of taste with some unusual dishes, something suitable for all tastes. Pleasant ambience and friendly staff.

Met up with friends as this was the half way point and what a find it turned out to be! The food was absolutely delicious, well cooked and plenty of it followed by desserts to die for. The staff tended to our every need and ensured that the lunch time get together was a very memorable occasion.I would highly recommend.

An excellent restaurant. Having stayed before we were very impressed with the new(to us) Chef who has taken over the restaurant and is producing excellent food with a very good and interesting choice on the menu. The hotel rooms are clean and very comfortable. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We have booked again for a stay in March.

I always come here with friends or family, and the food is always exceptional, and the staff very attentive. The a la carte menu is extensive with plenty of delicious options. The evening flyer menu is also great value for money, and offers plenty of choice, this is what I normally go for, as it is always different, and there's... More
